Sir Owen Morgan Edwards (1858-1920) was a Welsh historian, an educationalist and a prolific writer, starting and editing the periodical Cymru in 1892 and Cymru'r Plant for children in 1894, intended to arouse interest among the people of Wales in their own language and history. He wrote a number of books on Welsh history.
The Romans allowed the Welsh families and tribes to remain as before, and to be ruled by their own kings and chiefs. But they kept the defence of the country--the manning of the great wall in the north of Roman Britain, the garrisoning of the legion towns, and the holding of the western sea--in their own hand.
